Obafemi Awolowo University has been ranked second in research-oriented universities in Nigeria and 10th in Africa.

In his reaction to the ranking by the SCimago Institutions Ranking World Reports for 2011 released by SCimago Laboratory in Spain, the Vice-Chancellor of OAU, Prof. Bamitale Omole, said it would further strengthen the commitment of his administration to deepen academic research in the university.

Although delighted, the Vice-Chancellor appealed to the Federal Government to increase the funding of research activities in universities in the country. This, he noted, became necessary because investment in research development in universities would enhance the nation’s development.
